A Quote by Antiphon the Sophist

"Most of the things which are legally just are [none the less]...inimical to nature. By law it has been laid down for the eyes what they should see and what they should not see; for the ears what they should hear and they should not hear; for the tongue what it should speak, and what it should not speak; for the hands what they should do and what they should not do...and for the mind what it should desire, and what it should not desire."
